Updated: 2006-01-27 09:02

Taiwan's Kuomintang (KMT) Chairman Ma Ying-jeou said Thursday that Taiwan should consider allowing mainland's high school graduates to study in Taiwan's universities and colleges.

Ma, who is also Taipei mayor, told CNA in an interview that the measure should be introduced.

He said allowing mainland's students to study in Taiwan's universities would enable them to more understand Taiwan and would be conducive to peace between across the Strait.

According to Ma, another reason for his suggestion is that Taiwan's 160 universities and colleges would benefit from the measure because at present they do not have enough students to fill their vacancies.

Ma noted that a growing number of Taiwanese students are pursuing higher education in mainland each year.

The policy needs to be changed because "it will not do any good for Taiwan," he said.

According to figures released by the mainland, more than 5,000 Taiwanese students are studying in China's universities and colleges. An estimated 12,000 Taiwanese students have graduated from mainland's universities and colleges in the past years.
